Lizzo has announced her new album, ‘Special’, and dropped the first track from it, ‘About Damn Time’.
Set for release on 15th July, the news also arrives alongside a Christian Breslauer–directed video for its lead single, featuring Lizzo escaping a support group for the “stressed and sexy”.
“I’ve made the song of the summer with ‘About Damn Time’. I’m in my bag, and my bag is music. I’m good at music. It’s what I do,” Lizzo told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.“‘About Damn Time’ can lead into so many conversations. It’s about damn time I feel better, it’s about damn time we get out this pandemic. It’s about damn time we to get the first black female Supreme Court Justice. There’s so many things. It’s about damn time we popped the champagne. It’s about damn time the tequila got here.”
The tracklisting for the record suggests that previous single ‘Rumors’, featuring Cardi B, won’t feature on the record. Lizzo will perform ‘About Damn Time’ on Saturday Night Live this weekend, when she appears as both host and musical guest.
